Friday’s Rainbow 6 Jackpot Has $850,000 Guarantee At Gulfstream Park

The 20-cent Rainbow 6 jackpot pool will be guaranteed at $850,000 Friday at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla.

The popular multi-race wager went unsolved for the seventh straight racing day Thursday, when multiple tickets with all six winners were each worth $979.66.

The jackpot pool is only paid out when there is a single unique ticket sold with all six winners. On days when there is no unique ticket, 70 percent of that day’s pool goes back to those bettors holding tickets with the most winners, while 30 percent is carried over to the jackpot pool.

Friday’s Rainbow 6 sequence will span Races 5-10.

Thoroughbred, Steeplechase Jockey Hobales, 91, Passes Away

Jimmy Hobales, a former Thoroughbred and Steeplechase rider who worked for more than 50 years at South Florida tracks, died recently.

Hobales was 91.

Hobales rode at Saratoga, Belmont, Aqueduct and Monmouth in the 1950s. He also rode steeplechase horses and was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated in October of 1954. Born in Elmira, N.Y., Hobales grew up in Darby, Pa., where he drove a milk wagon and first fell in love with horses. Many people also knew Hobales as an entertainer who played the harmonica, including the National Anthem at Gulfstream before afternoon races cards.
